Please feel free to drop by the AGO for our "Big Reveal": These are the student projects this semester from our new Fall 2017 Inclusive Design course: INCD Multi-sensory Studio/Seminar (taught this semester by Dr. Peter Coppin in collaboration with co-instructor Bev Dywan from Industrial Design with major contributions from our colleagues at the AGO). For this event, student work will be co-located in the museum with the art pieces that they correspond to. Please see the attached map from our AGO colleagues.
This semester we focused on developing prototype multisensory translations/interpretations of art pieces and related cultural objects at the AGO. Students formed into groups and used co-creation technique to develop prototypes that engaged aural, tactile, and olfactory perception, using a range of high and low tech approaches. A number of these will become part of the AGO’s tactile tour. We were able to involve a range of stakeholders in the co-creation process, from the museum, the CNIB, and beyond. Students participated in this course from both local and remote locations, thus involving a diversity of student perspectives that would not have been possible otherwise.
Note that this is scheduled strategically on the evening that is open free of charge to the general public and so there will be a lot going on simultaneously. Hopefully, the attached map can help you find us. If you can't make it, I can update you on our result later!
